  • About the work

Polaroid.

Unique work from the "Synthetic Polaroid" series, started in 2014, not yet finished.

The photograph was taken in 2017 by the artist himself with a Polaroid Supercolor 635CL, later modified with oil or acrylic color, emphasizing in particular the red of the roses on the balconies.

The caption in Braille alphabet and the undefined outlines of the subjects give the impression of observing a memory blurred by time, representing the natural baths of Saturnia, in Tuscany.

Signed by the artist on the lower right.


About the Artists

, Italy

Alessandro D'Aquila's works revolve around contemporary culture, its popular images and how they are received or not received: their comunicability is the result of the recipient's perception, like D'Aquila highlights in his artworks, using the Braille alphabet, a language that is unintelligible for the majority of the public. By choosing this specific alphabet, the artist aims to provoke a sense of bewilderment in the average viewer, forcing them to experience what visually impaired people experience on a daily basis. With the 'Polaroid Sintetiche' series, D'Aquila takes the photographs himself and retouches them with oil and acrylic paint, simplifyng the subjects, doing the same work that our mind does with our memories, letting them fade away or mixing them with one another.Among his other series there are 'Ritratti senza volto', in which D'Aquila extrapolates his subjects from cinema, tv shows and pop culture, simplifying them to the extreme, making them recognizable thanks to their most distinctive features; 'Loghi comuni', a series dedicates to those brands that represent our collective imagination; 'Paesaggi sintetici', which presents diffrent types of oversimplified landscapes. 

"I'd like to make visual art suitable not for those who see but for those who watch."
